of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates
"/marist poll looking i three key states. in new hampshire, president obama leads 51% to governor romney's 44%. and down in north carolina, the race a little closer with president obama at 48% and governor romney 46%. and out west in nevada, obama, 49%, romney, 47%. but while the president holds the overall edge, voters seem less sure as to which candidate would do a better job fixing the economy. in new hampshire, 49% believe that the president would do a better job than mitt romney. 46% believe that mitt romney would do a better job. in north carolina, 47% think that mitt romney's the man to fix the economy, slightly ahead of president obama there who's at 46%. and back out to nevada, 46% think that mitt romney will do a better job, and 47% in nevada think the president can better handle the problems in the economy. that's a question of particular interest in nevada, with of course the housing crisis being at its worst there and unemployment also being above the national average. so does mitt romney have time to make up the difference when it comes to the horse race? here's what nate silver
weeks for president obama and governor romney? >> well, president obama's got a few things that can go wrong. some of them are political in terms of foreign policy. economically his biggest issue is if something goes wrong between israel or iran ratchets it up, oil prices go up, that always makes people feel very bad about the economy even if it's tied to something specific. there are two jobs reports to come out. one next friday and one five days before the election. those could indicate something the president doesn't like. here's the thing, bottom line right now the economy is feeling good. as you know it's still polling as the number one election issue. if it keeps on track, the republicans are going to have to watch their messaging about how this is a bad economy because many americans are not actually feeling it's worse than it was four years ago. >> and early october when jobs numbers, unemployment rate and also in early november before the election, the second one, still got those two jobs reports awaiting all of us. thanks, ali, very much. a severe breach of royal protocol for
candidates campaigning across the battleground state of virginia. governor romney in springfield, mr. obama in virginia beach. it is the third time in a week they are both hitting the same stage. shane deapril is the editor of campaigns and elections magazine. democrats are pretty confident about virginia this time. should they be, shane? >> we've seen some dueling polls out of virginia. there are some that show the president with a clear lead. some show the contest quite a bit tighter. but i think what you're seeing with amount of time both campaigns are spending in virginia it is such a key state when it comes to the electoral college calculation for both campaigns. essentially in my sort of electoral college predictor i have president obama at 237 electoral votes right now. so that means the three really big swing states, ohio, virginia, and florida, they could be really killers for mitt romney if he can't find a way to wrestle two of those away from president obama. if the president manages to get florida and virginia in his column, he is over the top of 270 electoral votes. if he manag
governor romney. before that, senior obama campaign advisor david axelrod. each has been working as though the entire campaign depends on what happens in next week's debate. the question is will it? we will talk about that in a moment. first, one indisputable truth, debates can make history. >> i have been -- >> september 26, 1960. the first televised presidential debate, signaling a new era where appearances matter more than ever and gaffes, however small, are magnified. >> the goals are the same for all americans. >> john f. kennedy, a young senator from massachusetts, facing off against vice president richard nixon, who is known to be a fierce debater. but on screen, kennedy looks cool and calm, while nixon looks uncomfortable, sweating profusely under the hot studio lights. nixon flounders under the glare of television for all four debates. kennedy goes on to win the election. in 1976, president gerald ford makes this blunder in his debate with georgia govern oor jimmy carter. >> there is no soviet domination of eastern europe and there never will be under a ford administration. >> i'm
the debate and of course, the election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters, and experts say neither are prone to making major gaffes. but if there is one thing that history has taught us, when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. joining us now to talk about the moments and debate magic yet to come, republican consultant romney 2008 campaign advisor, alex castellanos and donna brazile. a lot of folks are saying these debates are do or die for romney. donna, do you agree? >> absolutely. first impression is very, very important. mitt romney had several opportunities to change the trajectory of the campaign, his selection of a running mate, paul ryan, got a small bounce. the convention speech didn't get any bounce, and now the first debate. this is like the first night on broadway. there will be more voters tuning in, they will be looking at his performance and if he comes across as somebody who is credible, who is up to the task, he might get another bounce out of it. >> aren't undecided voters the least likely to tune into the debates? gal

[laughter] take a look at this poll, this same poll shows a much wider gap among women voters. the president holding a commanding lead, 56-38% among likely women voters
're governor rom any, he did very well in the debates and i think president obama is a good debater, not a great debater, to be frank about it. but the expectations game and the reality of what he has to accomplish is he has to go out there and change minds. and he has to do it when the fact is, when this is republicans ignored. they know him. they don't like his policies. >> go ahead, joe. >> i think that chris makes a great point. the 1980, ronald reagan really changed the course of the debate and helped himself by saying to americans, think back, are you better off today than you were four years ago, is it easier to get a job, are there fewer of you that are unemployed and by getting the american folks to concentrate on that as opposed to how much they like president carter really helped. >> that's a variation of the question that the romney campaign has been asking for several months and the results that they're getting based on the polling is not the answer that the romney campaign wants. >> well style matters in the debate. think about ronald reagan. jimmy carter had a lot of
tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of this discussion over polling and who is where, is ignoring a much larger story. the rise of the independent voters in this country. this could play into the next week's debate and election just five weeks from now. chris stirewalt is host of power-play on fox news.com. the rise of the independents. what do you mean? >> is something we have seen for 20 years, but accelerating in the last decade. republicans keep saying, don't pay attention to these polls. the democrats outnumber the republicans in these polls. that's not how it's going to be, that misses the larger truth. the number of republicans and democrats are both down. independents are up. independent voters continue to go up. people are not as tied to tight a partisan way that they used to be. certainly the long-standing affiliation, to keep people within a party, it is l
. specifically on what the governor -- former governor massachusetts, mitt romney, and president barack obama had said yesterday. specifically yesterday said -- specifically we want your general level confidence in each candidate on the area of foreign policy. here are the numbers to call. for democrats, 202-737-0001. for republicans, 202-737-0002. for independents, 202-628-0205. if you would like to take part in the program, there are different ways to do that. twitter.com/c-spanwj,an.o facebook.com or e-mail at journal@c-span.org. "the baltimore sun" encapsulate the speeches yesterday. they pointed out that president barack obama made an impassioned defense of the expression of freedom worldwide. mitt romney urged other nations to emulate the free economy and suggested that the obama leadership in the middle east has been inadequate and reactive. this is a short piece to start us off from the president at united nations yesterday, talking about the middle east.

his record i have more confidence president obama can get that done then governor romney. >> you can see this discussion at 8:00 p.m. eastern. now a look at spending ads from the annenberg policy center. this is 45 minutes. >> i am the editorial communications director of the center for responsive politics, and we are here to talk about the challenges posed to journalists by dark money and their mysterious donors. erica is joining me. she is an assistant director, director of the media project, which tracks of political ads aired in real time during i will talk a little more about what we are seeing in third- party assetds and how reporters contrite to report on this and what can be done if congress or some of the agency's wanted to make this easier for us, and kathleen wanted to meet with us to talk about their findings, third-party money and how much is being spent on deceptive ads, so first we will go to america. -- to erica. >> it is a pleasure to be here. i am not going to spend too long talking about how we do what we do, but i am happy to talk in greater detail if you have que
then moved toward obama but had no change in status. there were five states that moved toward governor romney. but again had no change in status. >> joe, of those, what is most important? >> i mean the biggest thing is that shift in nevada and ohio. those two in particular. ohio, obviously, a big move. moving it to lean obama, it puts for the first time, i think since we started back in april, it puts obama with over the 270 electoral votes. we had that back then. it's coming clear today. that makes states like colorado even more important. and ohio still, it's got -- that is a problem for romney that is now starting to show in the polls. although they came out yesterday saying that obama was only up by four. and had -- the rates were still very much up for grabs. romney people have to hope for that to be true. >> bret: karl, what about that? you know, even the p.p.p., a democratic leaning organization, suggesting some place like ohio is still up for grab. they had it at four. we talked a lot about these polls. and the concern about them. but your take on the battleground states and the state
an wednesday's big event. while the campaign played the game of lowering expectations for the governor. >> obama is a gifted speaker. he has been on the national stage for many years. experienceed debater. he has done the debates before. this is mitt's first time on this stage. >> romney campaign was left to slap itself in the forehead when governor chris christie apparently didn't get the expectations memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of the campaign, i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. thursday morning, the entire narrative of the race will change. >> reporter: in truth, debates rarely move polls in a significant ways. one notable exception was in 2000. when -- >> that's what a governor gets to do. >> dismissive al gore threw away a five-point lead in the course of three debates. >> romney advisors are just hoping for a solid performance. no knock-outs on wednesday night. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> romney advisors told me they don't expect that they could level knock-out blow against presi
important, because president obama and governor romney have a very different views as to where they want to take our country internationally. host: the caller touched a little bit on iran. what are you expecting from this speech from the iranian leader today? guest:, ahmadinejad -- i think your viewers know who he is -- he is a fool. he regularly ponce and criticizes the united states, he tells lies about our country, he is in israel later, he denies the holocaust, he has had several -- he has said several times that israel ought to be wiped off the map. he has lost most of his power. he is not the most significant leader in iran. that is the supreme leader khamenei. i expect a lot of bombast, a lot of lies about the united states. frankly, he will be talking at the united nations. iran has a very little support. they have support from hezbollah, the terrorist group in lebanon, the syrian government, which is an outlaw government right now. but most countries and to the world want nothing to do with the iranians. they are under very tough international sanctions because they had been vio
of the very first debate between president obama and governor mitt romney. fox news alert for you right now. this a news conference underway concerning breaking news in the presidential race. a pennsylvania judge decide tog puing to put a voter i.d. law on hold. this is a ruling that has upset conservatives already. some are calling it a victory for voter shaun. eric shawn is live with here. >> reporter: they are calling this decision a big win, the aclu. at pennsylvania when you show up at the polls in november you will be asked, or you could be asked to show your voter i.d., but understand this new ruling you don't have to show it. both sides indeed calling this a victory. it comes from commonwealth judge robert simpson. he backed the law originally and let voter i.d. stay but it's not enforced in order to vote. he blocked part of the law that requires people without an i.d. to vote by provisional ballot if they provide documentation within six days. he feared that could diseven franchise voters if people couldn't come up with the proof. he's also concerned about the distribution of id's
the presidenti dwn they debate health .re the back and forth between president obama and governor romney on this issue will be i think fascinating. we'll look forward to that. >> yeah, erick's not. trust me. >> i'm looking forward to seeing how they debate. health care's a very important subject. >> yes, it is nk very much. roland martin, erickson, good discussion. in this sprint to election another pect of mitt romney's wealth in texas could become a hot political topic. you're going to find up with his quote i dig it. hey america, en though s ilisa rwearing them, the new depend silhouette briefs for charity to prove h great the fit is even under a fantastic dress. the best protection now looks, fits and feels just like underwear. we invite you to get a free sample and try one on too. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" when a flo of chestires atened a thousand american jobs... vo: tough on china? not mitt romn. it was president obama whoto up to china and protected aman worrs. mitt ry attaed obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our worke
obama comes across as a slight silliness, as the you're likable enough, hillary, line. governor romney, when she prepared and on case, he can be quite effective and disciplined in saying here's what i want to do, here's why you're wrong, here's where i'm going to do a better job. where he gets into trouble is when something comes out of left field that he hasn't really prepared for. >> this is the moment that the challenger has some advantage because it's the first time you've seen him on the stage with the president. >> yes, historically, that's been the case, because when you think about it, a president never stands as an equal with another american citizen except during these debates, and for all that we read and psych out the race and say it may be opening up now, there still is this undeniable drama, seeing these people in the same room, face to face what are they going to do in 90 minutes? so the challenger often gets a boost just by being there. >> you went back and looked at some 30 hours of debates. i thought one of the most interesting points that you made was that you can ac
place. >>> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. this morning president obama and governor mitt romney are preparing for tomorrow night's first debate in denver. a new national poll shows the president has a four-point advantage going into this head-to-head matchup. it will focus on the economy and domestic issues. jan crawford is in denver this morning. >> reporter: both romney and the president have no more big campaign events before tomorrow night's debate. last night romney had a rally before more than 5,000 people. he picked up the endorsement of broncos legend john elway. there are less than 10% of voters who say they're undecided, they could change their mind. romney's challenge is to show why his proposals will make their life better and why the president doesn't deserve another chance. there was an interesting group last week in ohio with voters who packed the president in 2008 but aren't sold this time. it shows some think the president isn't to blame for the economy. they also don't know much good about romney thanks to the negative ads romney's camp
and election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters. but if there is one thing that history has taught us when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. anderson cooper, cnn. >> don't forget if you catch all the debate action right here on cnf. coverage starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern. talk about second chances. he was hit in the head in his first major league at bat. now seven years later he'll step up to the plate again. don't forget you can watch cnn live at the computer while at work or cnn.com/tv. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the
. as for president obama, though, his camp says there will be no time for zingers. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. >> but not in a smug, elitist, arugala loving way. at least that's what his advisers are hoping. there will likely be a lot of talk by president obama about romney's 47% quote and from romney about the stagnant economy and libya. both candidates must address the issues in a concise, personal and friendly way. if you ask comedian darrell hammantd, that's tough when you're scripted. >> i think these guys use coaches which is odd to me. you know, the less coached you are, the more natural you are. the more natural you are, the more personal you are, the more personal you are, the more general you are. >> in other words, zing away. but deliver them like -- i don't know. joe the plumber? the talk back question for you today, will the presidential debate be a game changer? facebook.com/carolcnn. faceboo
. >> reporter: sure, delighted. gregg: president obama and democrats continue to criticize governor mitt romney's statement that the country is becoming a entitlement society and yet, take a look at this. a "fox news poll" finds that 63% of likely voters think he is right. many americans are too dependent on government. and a similar "gallup poll" right after the democratic convention found nearly 2/3 of independents think government is trying to do too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses. is there a disconnect between the president and independent voters? joining us now to talk about it, brad woodhouse. he is the communications director for the democratic national committee. sean spicer, the communications director for the republican national committee. good to see you both. brad, let me start with you. when democrats were polled on this, 64%, we'll put it on the screen, 64% said the government should do more, not less. isn't the president and his party out of sync with the majority of americans 2/3 of independents, who believe the opposite? >> well, no, not at all. a
an advantage president obama held in ohio in three polls last week, worth noting the president has a lead that is outside the margin of error. for governor romney, time that cruel, cruel mistress is slipping away. early voting begins in ohio next tuesday. can he win without the state? if history is any judge no republican in history has won without ohio. according to the latest nbc news battleground map the president is expected to get 243 electoral votes to romney's 191. with eight tossup states. obama win in ohio with its 18 electoral votes would put him at 261 electoral votes, that is just nine away from winning re-election. surprising exactly no one ohio has been a top focus for candidates. while governor romney logged 17 trips to the state this election cycle president obama is making his 13th visit this year alone. earlier this month the democratic ticket made clear just how much ohio means to them. >> if we win ohio, we win the election. >> if we win toledo, we will win ohio. and if we win ohio we'll win this election. >> john heilemann, there has been no shortage of love for the s
